    Big road victory for the #3 ranked Bulldogs knocking off the top-ranked Fighting Irish in South Bend Friday night in the first of a pair of games between these two powerhouse programs. UMD, the pre-season #1 ranked team, re-established its claim as the best men’s hockey team with a gutsy come-from-behind two-goal 3rd period to edge Notre Dame 3-2. After a scoreless 1st period, Bolt prospect Cole Koepke fed senior Parker Mackay (undrafted) for a tap-in tally just under 4 minutes into the 2nd period as UMD open the scoring. Notre Dame battled back, scoring twice to take a 2-1 lead into the second intermission with goals from Andrew Peeke (CBJ, 2016 2nd round pick) and Colin Theisen (undrafted). Bulldog netminder Hunter Shepard (undrafted) made eight saves in the 3rd and Nick Swaney (MIN, 2017 7th round pick) scored shorthanded and added an assist in UMD’s two-goal third period that secured the victory.

    The unranked Spartans reeled off four straight goals in the 3rd as Michigan State shocked #8 Cornell at home in the Big Red’s season opener. 2018 Lightning draft pick Alex Green had a rough outing with a game-worst minus-three rating. The Spartans led 1-0 at the first intermission after scoring shorthanded, with Cornell battling back in the 2nd and knotting the score at 1-1 on a Max Andreev (undrafted) marker. But the Spartans scored early and often in the 3rd, building a 5-1 lead before Matt Cairns (EDM, 2016 4th round pick) added a late goal for the Big Red. Michigan State was led by Taro Hirose (undrafted) with a goal and pair of assists, and Spartan netminder John Lethemon (undrafted) made 32 saves for the win.

It is unknown if Lohin is injured or was a healthy scratch, as he has struggled out of the gate for the now 3-2 River Hawks.

    Season Totals: 4 GP, 2-3-5, +7, 4 PIM

    Bolt prospect Cole Guttman was key in the Pioneers erasing a three-goal deficit to draw a tie after a scoreless overtime against the visiting Nanooks from Alaska-Fairbanks.
